What type of shifts do you work?

  1. I'm still in school, but I'm starting to daydream about graduating and starting to work as an NP. So I'm curious, what type of shifts do you work, and in what setting?

    I work Mon-Thursday 10 hour shifts, I take call from 0600-1700 on the days I work.

    I see anywhere from 10 to 60 patients/day depending on location. I drive approx 500-800 miles per week to reach the dialysis units I work in....

    I work Mon-Thurs 4 x 10hr shifts, currently doing 6:30-4:30p as that works best for me (I can start anywhere from 6 to 8am and finish 4 to 6pm).

    No weekends, holidays, nights or call.

    My previous job had rotating shifts including weekends and holidays. I worked 7-5, 4 x 10hr shifts.

    Are you an ACNP?

    I'm still in school too, however there are NPs in the ER of my facility that still work the 3/12 option. I love that. I really like 12 hour options because it allows time at home and to be a Mom. One of them works 1p-1a, one works 11a-11p, and one works 6a-6p. They run a redi-med type clinic within our ER system. Love their job. I'm hopeful that because I already work there and am in a fairly high up administrative role, I'll be able to bid on a job like that when I'm done with school. I worked in a private practice, 8-5pm, 5 day/wk gig for over 10 years and I liked it, but I REALLY don't want to go back to something like that.

    Sounds pretty much like a perfect set up
